Happy Holidays

I am having a lovely break....

And getting lots of stitching time.
I hope you are too!

Did I say I would stop?

With Christmas so close we are all getting a bit excited
but the other day I noticed
my tea cosie 
didn't fit the season

Meet my Christmas tea cosie!
( I might further embellish if time allows)
Best wishes to all of you...
keep cool...
keep warm....
And stay safe.

I'm not the only one

I'm not the only one I'm sure who likes to make their own gifts at Christmas

So this is what we had a go at...
The mountain climber and I.
Some petunias. 

They looked good for a short while but I have already given them away.

I was playing around with my blog earlier trying to add another blog to my favourites
(over on the side there) and then
I lost the lot!

So if you would like to go back there,
you know who you are,
could you leave me a comment?

Where did that week go?

I have been getting ready for Christmas...

      The time is flying.
What do you do with these lovely jars?

Home Alone

I've been home alone for the last few days!
What bliss.
So I started on a new quilt
all fabric from my stash, so far.

But how long does fabric have to be in the cupboard to qualify as "stash"?
Not sure which way will be "up" ....
I finished this cardigan
except for the buttons.

The yarn is a sort of denim blue.
I added the pocket.
Red buttons?
(By the way, it is Summer here)

Can't stop there

Just one little try is never enough
so I had another try...

Over here they've used a glue stick to hold things in place.
Seems like a good idea, so I did that with the circles.

And I touched up the edges..

The first 2 were larger than the prescribed size
 so these are just a bit smaller.
